Is it possible to setup all carriers to build only bombers, without scrapping every single fighter and tapping on the Build Bomber button? I have a carrier design with 13 Adv Fighters Bays, so it's rather fiddly to make them bombers-only that way

No, it's not possible to change what the balance of fighters carried by a carrier is. Nor, for that matter, would I suggest bothering changing the composition of a carrier's fighter wing manually, as last I checked, fighters which are destroyed will be replaced by the fighter type which brings the carrier's fighter wing closer to the 50-50 split, not by the kind of fighter which was lost.

Thanks! Indeed, carriers build fighters to restore balance.
Which means that it's better not to research longrange bombers, as they will further reduce the firepower.

The only way to build just a single strike-craft type is by splitting off the research branches.

I find you don't need anything beyond the first bomber tech and the first nuclear bomb. I build my own bombers and don't build carriers at all as I put advanced fighters on my bombers and while they are bombing the advanced fighters keep other enemy ships at bay. I also put on 1 troop carrier and watch my bombing. When all the soldiers on a planet finally die I send in just a small wave of troops and take the planet. Since I don't use assimulate except on races that like me. I have no problems with revolts. One planet taken for a lot less tech.
